WP ENGINE HAS LET ME DOWN
Sandy McCarthy,
4.8
I have been with WP Engine for my wordpress site for several years now. I had heard they were the best for a business Wordpress site. In the past, I had no problems with my site ever going down. Since switching to WP Engine, ... More It has been problem after problem with my site going down for hours at a time. I finally had to set up with a Down Time notification service so I could keep track. They have switched my site over to different servers several times but never seem to be able to provide a reason or explanation for the problem. Their pricing is way higher than most companies (which they admit) yet they provide nothing special and their reliability is not stable at all. Now actively looking to switch my site to a different company. Less
Pretty pricey for SHARED VPS
dan marley,
4.0
forget it that you get "VPS" or "MANAGED" its just plain shared VPS if you wont go with amazon or google cloud.
SO BASICLLY YOU PAYING HIGH PRICES FOR SHARED HOSTING WITHOUT ANY BENEFITS.
everything cost there money, plain "... More upgrade" if you want it to handle woocomerce as pricey as kinsta or any other service.
Support isn't really knowlegebale so..
GOING back to my previous host.
